Jamaica ready for Olympic double


Despite having a population not much bigger than Greater Manchester, Jamaica has the two fastest men on the planet.

Usain Bolt and Asafa Powell will go head to head in the final of the men's 100 metres at the Olympics.

But, the thing that's splitting the country down the middle is who will take the gold.

Nick Davis has been speaking to people on the streets of Kingston.
